World Cup Giraffe?

Yipee, the games are afoot! Here is an illustration for the World Cup I did that ran in Sports last week (Mark Zeigler story). It was my idea to put a soccer pattern on a giraffe and I was very excited to get to do something for the beautiful game. But when I got the space to do it for the cover, I must admit I got a little nervous. What if it looked ridiculous. What if people wondered what the heck a giraffe was doing on the cover of sports. Well, I continued working anyway and it all turned out just fine. I got compliments from many a soccer fan. It was a hit as well as an eye-catching change of pace for the sports page. At least that is my opinion. Gooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaal!
